My explosive contest entry
« on: May 17, 2011, 02:51:48 am »
So I have already started work on my contest entry, which is as of now still unnamed, but progress on the engine goes rather rapidly.  I've already implemented full rigid body physics onto my 4x4 tilemap, and I have also implemented springs, although they are not present in the screenshot.  You will also notice the screenshot is rather explosive >:D

The premise of my game is a puzzle platformer where you are a quite small little person using comically large guns and explosive devices to progress through each level and eventually complete an objective or something.  Right now i'm just focusing on getting the engine working, but so far everything is looking great :) I'll post progress as it comes ^^

The screenie below isn't really a puzzle, as its pretty simple :P But it has the basis for becoming a puzzle and right now is just a testing area for testing the various aspects of the game engine.

Woah O.O

That looks super great, and the explosion effect is really there with the screen shaking and stuff.
* DJ_O wonders how it will be if the entire screen is filled with those O.O

 O.O amazing animations there!

I see that I chose wisely when I decided not to join this contest. If you can do that in 1 day then I can't imagine what will happen in 2 months.

* z80man hopes that BuilderBoy doesn't buy a Prizm until September 16th


List of stuff I need to do before September:
1. Finish the Emulator of the Casio Prizm (in active development)
2. Finish the the SH3 asm IDE/assembler/linker program (in active development)
3. Create a partial Java virtual machine  for the Prizm (not started)
4. Create Axe for the Prizm with an Axe legacy mode (in planning phase)
5. Develop a large set of C and asm libraries for the Prizm (some progress)
6. Create an emulator of the 83+ for the Prizm (not started)
7. Create a well polished game that showcases the ability of the Casio Prizm (not started)

Lol I still think people should participate. After all a big portion of the results is based on the survey, and people will probably vote for their favorite puzzle/platformer based on their own preferences.

Ah don't count yourself out yet. You're one of the best platformers here right now. If anything this will be a heavily heated competition till the end.

List of stuff I need to do before September:
1. Finish the Emulator of the Casio Prizm (in active development)
2. Finish the the SH3 asm IDE/assembler/linker program (in active development)
3. Create a partial Java virtual machine  for the Prizm (not started)
